More About Grandma Rose

More About Grandma Rose

Some of you have asked about Mimi's mother, who we call Grandma Rose. Grandma Rose was born in 1923, so she has seen more than almost any dog. She has not been well lately and it has become difficult for her to walk. She has become very tiny, less than 100 pounds. We are grateful, however, that she knows everything that is going on. Mimi wants to spend as much time with Grandma Rose as she can.

Until last July, Grandma Rose lived independently in her own home. Now she is in a place called "Assisted Living" where the peeps that run the place sometimes frown at dogs. But Mimi found out that it's OK to have a dog as a visitor, they just can't live there. And they aren't supposed to bark or annoy anybuddy.

It is hard fur me not to bark because I am good at home security.

Grandma Rose likes dogs. This might be because in the 1920's, her dad bred Boston Bull Terriers.  She says that the puppies were the cutest.

Mimi says that she will try to take me with her the next time she visits Grandma Rose. This is because I am good medicine. Before Grandma Rose moved into assisted living, she would take me every time. 

Until last July, Grandma Rose was completely independent.
Thank you everybuddy fur caring about Grandma Rose. Mimi  is very worried about her. She is losing her physical health quickly and will probably have to move to a different place where she will get more care. 

Right now, though, Grandma Rose is happy with where she is living.

  13. We know Grandma Rose loves dog visits! Must make her day.

  14. Ghostwriter works in a nursing home. She says everybody LOVES it when animals come to visit, especially dogs! There used to be a cat who lived at the nursing home. Sammy cat always knew who needed him the most. Unfortunately, he retired, and was not replaced. Make sure you go to visit your Grandma Rose as often as you can; and go around and say hi to all the other people there too.

  15. Dear Louis and Hazuzu and Mom...
    Grandma Rose is a beautiful lady. We hope that she is adjusting to her assisted living.
